I upgraded to the Razr Maxx three weeks ago. My previous phone, a Droid 2, did not have good reception at my home. I had to sit by a window on the west side of my house to place a call. All of that changed the day I bought the Razr Maxx. It showed better reception, and I could place calls from anywhere in the house without dropping calls or breaking up. The day I upgraded to ICS, I was back to sitting next to the window. The Razr Maxx actually HAD better reception/signal before the upgrade.
